Howells Mere 48, Lower Mill Estate – Testimonials

Perfect for a luxury break with friends or family

I recently stayed at 48 Howells Mere on the Lower Mill Estate with a group of friends for a weekend and we could not fault this property, the lovely location or the fantastic on site facilities. The house itself was spotlessly clean, in a perfect quiet location and beautifully decorated with everything provided that you might require for a short or longer stay. The property comes with free access to the amazing ArtSpa which includes an indoor and outdoor heated pool – which you can swim in whatever the temperature or weather outside – as well as all the usual spa treatments such as massages and facials.

Several of our group took advantage of these and they were reasonably priced and very good. There are also lots of public footpaths close by for walks close to the site and other towns within easy access. Altogether I would say this property combines a little bit of luxury in beautiful surroundings and is excellent value for money particularly for a group or family.

Fantastic property, excellently run charming development and setting.

We booked this property for four couples for a two night stay. The booking was easy, Kasha was able to answer all queries prior to booking. The directions and information provided was very helpful.

The property was exactly as advertised. Very clean and well appointed, in a superb setting. The estate is a very interesting development with many different styles of property together with a free spa and a small shop on site. There are numerous walks around the lakes of the Cotswold Water Park, on this occasion we were not adventurous enough to try any water sports that are on offer down the road.

Overall the experience was excellent, we had a fantastic time and could not have asked for more from the property and the service provided by the proprietors. I would definitely recommend this to similar groups.

A great holiday house

Three generations of our family stayed at No. 48 for a week just before Easter 2012. The house is very modern, simply and tastefully decorated, warm and exceptionally well equipped, a real home from home. With four bedrooms and four bathrooms there was no queuing in the mornings and the open plan living area was ideal for a party of our size. The facilities available are all you would ever want, and apart from disputes over use of the Wii or TV or DVD, we lacked for nothing. The deck gets the sun from mid morning to late afternoon and despite being shared with adjacent properties is ideal for relaxing outdoors and watching the wild life. We made full use of the ArtSpa every day and the inclusive free membership of this facility was a huge holiday bonus. Kasha from Cotswold Spa Holidays kept me well informed via email throughout and we had two visits during our stay to check whether we had any problems.

Excellent Location, Modern Facilities and ideal for Family Groups

As 4 families totaling 8 adults and 10 children, Lower Mill Estate was a superb location for a relaxing but fun weekend. Firstly, the booking process and pre-arrival communication was first class. Kasha was extremely prompt in e-mail communication and nothing was too much trouble which helped provide instant reassurance that everything was in order. We were greeted by John upon arrival who was extremely informative and answered all our initial queries. We stayed in 2 adjoining houses with decking areas and both were in immaculate condition and had all the modern facilities that you would expect in this day and age. (a Wii in one house!) They were spacious properties considering there were 9 people staying in each house. Whilst the site/complex was larger than envisaged we were fortunate that it was relatively quiet so we virtually had a free reign with the excellent leisure spa facilities on the estate- lovely clean pool, sauna and steam room. The exercise gym also came in handy but not enough time for the spa treatments. The site is an ideal location for exploring the Cotswolds and it was a shame we were only there for 2 days. Definitely one to recommend!

We had a great time at Howells Mere 48

My husband and I always stay in self catering establishments for our holiday and there is no doubt that Howells Mere 48 is the best equipped house we have ever stayed in and I don’t just mean equipment but also the basic provisions that were in the cupboard – it made so much difference and was well thought.

Many thanks.

Fantastic New Year At 48 Howells Mere

We stayed at 48 Howells Mere for 5 nights over New Year – ‘we’ being a party of 8 (4 couples) – we all had a truly fantastic time
The property is immaculate, tastefully decorated and very well equipped – it is also situated in a beautiful position overlooking the lake.
The local swans came to visit us every morning – tapping on the window with their beaks
Being 4 couples it was also great having our own separate bathroom facilities.
The facilities at Lower Mill are superb – we thoroughly enjoyed the Spa Treatments, Steam & Sauna Rooms and even ventured into the outdoor pool (it was heated!!)

We booked the house through Cotswold Spa Holidays – the service provided by Kasha & John is top drawer – even down to a special delivery of ice cubes (thanks John)
Many thanks

Really Fantastic Accommodation & complex

We stayed at 48 Howells Mere on the Lower Mill Estate the weekend before Christmas. There were 2 families of 4 staying at the property where we celebrated my husband’s birthday.
There was so much thought put into our stay including a beautifully decorated Christmas tree in our property. The property was immaculate and everything we needed was provided. We even had help in lighting the log burner which as well as keeping us all warm whilst it was freezing outside, looked lovely :).
The property is in a beautiful setting and had plenty of space for all 8 of us. We ate in and had all the facilities to cook and a lovely table to seat us all.
We made good use of the facilities at Lower Mill including regular use of the spa swimming pool, sauna & steam room.
We wouldn’t hesitate to return to this property. Many Thanks to Kasha & John

The little touches made a lovely break extra special

This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Whilst everything is modern and in excellent condition there is a definite charm., especially once the log burner gets going. All enquiries were dealt with quickly and helpfully. The little touches were the things which really made it though, with a stair gate, cots and high chairs in good condition provided, simple artificial flower decorations, and even a Christmas tree lit up in the corner. It was a great setting for a family celebration and we are already thinking about when we can do it again.

wonderfully relaxing weekend

48 Howells Mere is wonderfully located in a gated community far away from the stresses and strains of every day life. I went with 15 friends for a joint birthday party, and we had a relaxing long weekend.

You have free access to the spa and the facilities there and the house overlooks a small lake so if you want to relax with your friends in the lovely outdoor area. The house is beautifully clean and the master bedroom is wonderful. As are the other bedroom in the property.

The pub is nearby – just a 15 minute walk away or if you want to hire a bike, it’s about 5 minutes away. There’s lots to do in the area also if you want to go for longer than a weekend.

Birthday surprise we will treasure forever

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say that we had an absolutely fantastic time this weekend. My brother said it was a birthday surprise he’ll treasure forever and the place was better than a 5 star hotel! Everything about the location was stunning; the standard of the house, the furnishings, the view and the spa was to die for.

We all loved it so much that we want to make it an annual family trip! In particular the Howells Mere developments, we were really taken by them and fell in love.

We hope you find that we left the house as we found it when you go today. We took a lot of care to look after the place, it was far too nice to treat it any other way!

Thanks for renting out such a beautiful place for us, we truly had an amazing time!

Kind Regards

A fantastic time

We had a fantastic time at Howells Mere 48, everything was good and the house was spotless.

I can honestly say that it was the cleanest holiday rental that we have ever stayed in. And we holiday in England three times a year!

Many thanks for your help.
Kind regards

Relaxing break in lovely house

We had a lovely stay at 48 Howells Mere.
The house was spotlessly clean and well decorated throughout.
There is a shared decking area which I’d thought would be a problem but actually we felt very secluded and rarely saw our neighbours.
The house is very well equipped with everything you could need.
The spa and swimming pool were both very clean and never busy.
I’d highly recommend this house for a well-priced, very comfortable and relaxing stay.
